The return makes one love the farewell.
--Alfred de Musset
Saturday and Sunday night came and left with Big Black Cloud creating a trail of smoke behind them. Both shows were top notch; the first being at the Shack by Woodbridge Pub and the second at Cass Cafe. The sound at Cass was a bit better, but not by much. Both shows had their strengths. Saturday's show was just an all out party. Everyone got much too drunk, but had a great time. Sunday was more down-tempo drinking wise because everyone was hung over. The atmosphere was pretty chilled out, until the end of the night when everyone got to the point of super drunk, and we made our exit when some drunk guy kept bumping our car with his car trying to parallel park.
Here are some pictures.
Sometimes my shutter doesn't open all the way.
Still a neat picture from Saturday.

People kept asking, "Are they twins?"
Not sure what's happening...

All and all it was a wonderful weekend. It was very nice seeing Josh and his band mates again. It had been about 2 years. 2 years ago, we all figured it was the last time we'd see Big Black Cloud, and it was sad, but sweet. And these 2 shows were no different, sad but sweet. 'Sweet' like the taste... and 'sweet' like "awesome, rock n' rollin' good time, dude."
And sad, like, sad.
Like puppies getting hit by cars and the cars are being driven by dying babies with grandma passing away in the backseat.
But still sweet, too.
